My journey

Soumya Vilekar
Posted September 29, 2015 from India

While nothing in this life is permanent and law of impermanence applies to one and all, we all are undertaking a journey continously and constantly.

A journey through our own self , to delve within and introspect while a journey on a broader canvas of life as we age and grow. Often the frequent journeys of life which we mention while travelling , is just a travel from one place to another whether from a village or town to another one. The actual journey happens within, invisible to the outer world ,infinitesimally slow and can only be noticed when the change has been done or appears externally.

From the land of spirituality , I hail , better known as India.For me , Life isn't about reaching anywhere,its about a journey which I undertake everyday, every moment as I learn, observe , keenly try to undertsand ,while evaluating myself to the needs of people around me starting from my family to the closer ones,empathisizing and moving forward with a new lesson everyday.

I do not dream of achieving a position or possessing riches neither I yearn to to be acclaimed with fame, I strive to be a better human whence my conscience would be proud to stand in pride. I wish to infuse life in people who lose the zeal of living and feel an urge to motivate myself and others to create a world free from weapons and hatred.

A writer by passion, I dip my words in my intensive emotions to pierce the souls of each and every person with love and compassion. Tis human love, which teaches us to respect others and acknowledge their presence. My writings echo this constant urge to drive people with a sense of humanity and peace ,eradicating all walls ,be it real or imaginary , and aspire for a world of freedom and love.

Dear Soumia,

You are truly a poet, and a wise one. Thank you for this description of your journey, which touched me deeply. What a lovely reminder of how life lived in the moment, and for the moment, with attention to the spiritual aspect of our very existence, is greater by far than the striving toward some goal that can be in danger of being ego based and hollow, compared to the richness of embracing the journey itself, trusting that it is in the journey that we accomplish what we are here to do, not in the fretting that we have not yet achieved the goal we envision. Even goals of critical importance, such as the beautiful goals expressed from so many beautiful hearts within WorldPulse are reached by embracing the journey. Thank you for the reminder.

With love,

Tam

Thank youso much Tams for your genuine kind words. For a whole life, we all endeavour with efforts to reach a goal and in the meantime forget and lose the essence of the journey itself. You truly captured the gist of my article in which I articulated few of the thoughts which said about my journey. Our own journey.

Best wishe sto you and so glad to have you here.

A poet you are Soumya and poet you are destined to be. I see a bit of myself in your write-up, especially the aprt that talks about not dreaming of achieving big riches....For me a comfortable life, good health and making impact is all I yearn for. Love and freedom for all I echo you......

Regards, Tosin

Thank you so much Tosin for joining in here . Iam happy that you too have a similar thought and think alike regarding the aspirations . What matters is the beautiful life that we can create with our efforts and talent rather than over loading our own life with riches and no causes to work upon. The strive and urge to work on something keeps the mind and heart alive, Soumya

Dear Soumya,

Am impressed by your value for others. You are very compassionate. An expression of a journey that is self drive through age. When human have places for others in their hearts they we own up the drive to help others.

As you mentioned its human love which teaches us to respect others snd acknowledge their presence. I like that and as passionate writer this is great.

Warm regards,

Rosemary.

Dear Soumya,

I have been in India for the past 5 months and you are right about it as the land of spirituality - every corner I turn, a temple shows up! You have described your journey with full dose of passion, love, empathy and values.

From a writer standpoint, I was immersed completely in this 'journey' that you described using another 'journey.' The end of your post, "My writings echo this constant urge to drive people with a sense of humanity and peace, eradicating all walls, be it real or imaginary and aspire for a world of freedom and love" is really deep.

Your post held my eyes to attention, it grabbed my hands to comment, it made my heart leap into imagining how beautiful the world will look like when your vision is acheived.

I will definately like to read more of your inspiration and exploits.

All the best and hearty cheers.

Fasoranti.

Dear Fasoranti ,

I really apologise  for the late response on this wonderful encouraging comment of yours. I m touched that you could co relate to what I dream and tried to put in words to create an image for others. Truly it would be a wonderful world when people realize humanity is the biggest gift we can ever have.

Great to be connected

Thank you for giving voice to the potency of being aware of our inner journey.  Bringing this awareness into the light is an integral piece that we need to bring forth in our conversations as communities all across the globe deal with issues such as flooding, mass extinction and climate change.  Centred in our inner climate, we access that deep reflection needed to address the crisis we are experiencing in our extrenal environments.  Thank you for modeling this in your poetic prose.

Thanks Paula for your beautiful comprehension of my thoughts. Yes, to live in peace we need to have inner peace and for that we have to be in belief with our thoughts and resonate our ideas with others to bring them  into action. The journey whether inward or outward is phenomenal and evolving

Thanks
